Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place basil, garlic, pepper in food processor; process until garlic is in wee bits.

Step 2

Add butter, lemon juice and process until all is combined.

Step 3

I like to wrap my butter in a log in plastic wrap, but you can store it in a container and refrigerate until firm.

Great tasting butter! What else can one expect from a Luvcookn recipe! I used it to add to steamed broccoli and boy was it good. Will also use it for garlic bread.....the possibilities are endless. The flavor was spot on. Thank you Luvcookn for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.

Great over potatoes. I am sure there are tons of other applications as well.

This butter smells so good. Quite garlicky. I boiled some potatoes and then sauteed them in basil butter. Delightful.

This is quick and easy! This recipe produces a flavorful enhancement to any vegetable or bread. Mine didn't look as good as the photo as I didn't uses as much basil with my one stick of butter mainly because I didn't want to defoliate my basil plant. Next time, I'll buy fresh basil so I can add more leaves. I also used diced garlic in a jar. Made for Billboard tag.
